Emma Thatcher and Molly Bolton, both 14, and from Tatworth, had to complete many challenges, including teaching others first aid, writing reports on events that they had attended and organising charity events.

The girls also taught the other guides about disability awareness. They went on a residential adventure weekend with other guides from all over the south on Brownsea Island, in Poole Harbour, the home of scouting and guiding.

Both girls have been attending 1st Charmouth Guides for many years.
